Creepy Cute Crochet Review

I was sent this wonderful crochet book to review. It is by Quirk Books' "Creepy Cute Crochet" and it was released last spring. I loved it....It has so many [20] cute "creepy"designs especially for the Amigurumi lover. The patterns are easy to follow with loads of pictures and you can tell the amount of experience it takes to make each one as they are rated. Since I love Halloween it was a perfect little treat for me. If you are interested in some cute little monsters, nijas or little spooky crochet beings, then this is the book you'll "die" for. [no pun intended]

The animals are really cute just like the title portrays with a little "creepyness" to them. :) very small and I especially liked the vampires...yeeks!! There is even some humorous writings listed.

I highly recommend it for any crochet creepy animal lover as a "must have" pattern book for your crochet library...I know I love it !! Around $14.95
